Hello all, this is my first time posting in here. I am scheduled to be in the class starting on the 30th. Did anyone else in this class receive anything about travel yet? Or know when we will receive info about flights to the academy?

I was actually wondering the same thing. My only guess is that they are still selecting people and want to send training info all together once they have a complete list. I may be wrong but it makes the most sense in my opinion. If anyone knows different, please advise!!

I was just checking in at the end of the week to see if anyone has heard from training yet on travel and other pre-Academy matters. I assume not because there's been no posts since the ones saying there's been no word so far. I'd think we'd be hearing something next week. It's getting to be crunch time.

60 Minutes aired a piece tonight on the opioid crisis and the DEA's diversion program. Kind of depressing.

Yikes! I doubt we'll be involved in that level of policy--but that's pretty alarming.

Interesting read thanks for posting. I am very surprised that DEA lawyers are able to jump from DOJ to pharma so fast instead of having a wait period. To go from manning 600 to none had to be humiliating. Essentially if u cant go after the head to effectively stop distribution then your job is reduced to only doing busy work. Interesting.

On another note still no news for me. With class starting so soon I'm just trying to focus on other things.

This is more a question for established investigators: what happens if you start experiencing hearing loss? I passed the hearing exam this time, but wonder what will happen if my hearing begins to fade, say ten years down the road.

That's what I was thinking. This is giving short notice for the things we'll need to be prepared to travel. Hopefully that info will come today.

Welcome to the federal government!!!


Finally! I know we have all been in this process for about 2 years, but I'm wondering how long it took everyone to finally get in with the government.

It took me about 6 years after my first application several years ago with different agencies. I'm excited that this has finally happened!

DEA will not pay for you to fly back home. Anytime you go home, it comes out of your pocket.
